room assignments

Returning housing students are allowed to participate in a room selection process in March where they are allowed to pick what exact room/hall they would like to be in. They are also allowed to participate in our singles lottery. There are approximately 50 designated single rooms on campus.  The resident's placement in the lottery is determined by completed credit hours and time frames stayed on campus. To be placed in the lottery, select 'single room' as your first living preference in My Housing.

Any student who is not placed in a single, will be added to the Singles Wait List based upon their timeframes on campus and the date their application was received.

Transfer students are allowed to preference any residence hall on campus. They sign up by filling out a housing application and choosing personal preferences. We do our best to meet these preferences. Placement is determined by the date the application is received as well the ability to accommodate roommate requests.

Freshmen may preference Ranger Hall or Pike River Suites. Ranger Hall is a traditional style residence hall which provides maximum interaction with students and Residence Life staff. Freshman are allowed to put in roommate requests if they know who they would like to live with. Both students must request each other as roommates and we will do our best to accommodate these requests.  Requests must be made through MyHousing before July 1 for the fall and January 15 for the spring.  Freshmen may preference a 'single room' in MyHousing, however there are a limited number of single rooms available for incoming students.

Any student who is not placed in a single, will be added to the Singles Wait List based upon their timeframes on campus and the date their application was received.

Fall Semester

Residents will be sent an email to their Ranger Account with their room assignment on July 15. This email will include information on how to change rooms. From July 15 to August 1 residents are able to see what rooms are available on campus and make changes to their assignment through MyHousing. After August 1, residents must wait until the third week of the academic year to request a room change. This allows housing staff time to prepare for Opening Day and residence hall move in.

Spring Semester

Residents receive their assignment on January 15.This information is sent to their Ranger email account. Students must wait until the third week of the semester to request a room change.

Three weeks into the semester students who are unhappy with their living situation are eligible to turn in a 'room change request'. Our main goal is to provide students with a safe, studious, healthy, and fun environment to call their home. We want all students to feel comfortable living on campus and we will always work with a student in need.

All room changes requests must be completed through MyHousing. Room change requests are processed by the department in the order they are received. Room changes must be approved by the Office of Residence Life.
